My childhood dream

I got into an email conversation with a fellow overachiever and good friend whom I've known since middle school. She reminded me of several of our old topics of discussion. For example, when all the teachers and other students would ask us what we wanted to be when we grew up, our normal jovial response was "The coolest people in the WORLD!" I don't remember saying this, but knowing my mentality in middle school, that phrase awfully does sound reminiscent of something I would have proclaimed. But somewhere between my pre-teen years and current life I have lost sight of my childhood dream. What I failed to do is to set some goals to achieving this status. Perhaps it is time to get back on track. I guess I could take the easy route to obtaining coolness and focus my energies on creating a new ice-cube shape, which would force me to work in cool conditions, but that would be incredibly opposite of cool, quite stupid and not nearly challenging enough. Ant suggestions on what it would take to become universally cool? Gosh this post sounds so juvenile but I must admit I get a kick out of it.

I think you should study univerally cool people. They have the secret. Here I'm thinking people like Fonzie or Kim Possible or those kids on 90210. What do they have in common? All fictional. Personally I gave up on cool. Too much compromise of your virtues and values.
